Brian Gardner It’s no secret I’m a fan of Google Fonts, but I’m also an huge advocate of Typekit Fonts as well. I love the variety of fonts that Google offers, and they are free to use, but once in a while I want to take my website to a higher level.
His name is Joeke-Remkus de Vries, but you can call him Remkus. You might know him by his online handle DeFries and you could have run into him at one of the many WordCamps around the world.
The first time I went to a WordCamp I knew absolutely no one there and that made me a bit nervous, to say the least. I didn’t really know what to expect. I’d been to a few really big tradeshows and some educational conferences, and expected some hybrid of that, which isn’t too far off, …
Berkeley As white supremacists go, Joey Gibson makes for a lousy one. For starters, he’s half Japanese. “I don’t feel like I’m Caucasian at all,” he says. Not to be a stickler for the rules, but this kind of talk could get you sent to Master Race remedial school.

Howdy! Pardon me while I clear out the cobwebs in the blogging corner of this site. Recently I’ve started following the work of James Clear. He seems to be (at least trying to be) a 21st century version of Stephen Covey or maybe John Maxwell.
It is somewhat surprising that with approximately 8.7 million Americans using a mobility device such as a wheelchair, walker, or cane in their daily lives, no single online store or brick-and-mortar outlet serves as a hub for adaptive outdoor recreation equipment.

With little old MCE editor so lively and quick, Matt knew in a moment it was a St. Gutenberg trick.

Unfortunately, many developers don’t follow this advice simply because they forget about the debugging tools built-in to WordPress or just don’t know how to use them. In this post I’ll go through the basic debugging tools available and show you how easy they are to use.
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. ( WFLA) – You could call it a derrière dilemma, a keister caper, or even a rump riddle. Ah, yes. It is sixth-grade humor at its finest with endless comical posterior possibilities. At the end of the day, however, what’s now being called “butt graffiti” is ultimately illegal.

The tech industry has long suffered a gender imbalance, with companies such as Google and Facebook acknowledging how few women were in their ranks.

A doctor at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia told the family of a 3-year-old girl that he would not perform a kidney transplant on the girl because she is mentally disabled, according to the family.

Hey Guys! Today’s video is kinda unique.

After a few days of rest, and a few more days wrapping up vendor invoices, gathering feedback, uploading more than 50 videos on WordPress.tv and tying up loose ends, we can really consider WordCamp Europe 2017…finished! We decided to share some data about the event, starting with attendance figures: 1,900 people from 79 countries were present.
WASHINGTON-Before the 2016 presidential election, a longtime Republican opposition researcher mounted an independent campaign to obtain emails he believed were stolen from Hillary Clinton’s private server, likely by Russian hackers. In conversations with members of his circle and with others he tried to recruit to help him, the GOP operative, Peter W.
If there’s anything we should learn from it’s that’s we’re not alone and we should never give up. Sense8 was tragically canceled on June 1st, and we roared. We cried. We carried signs: you can see sense8 made a real difference and that makes me so emotional #pride2017 pic.twitter.com/Q0Lpdb8ysd – juliette.
The saga of Zillow’s totally bullshit legal threat has lasted all of three days. Following a terrible (and still wrong) attempt at damage control, Zillow has sent a note to all the reporters who have covered the story to say that it won’t be…
At WordCamp Europe I had the opportunity to speak with WordCamp Netherlands organizers Marcel Bootsman and Luc Princen, along with WordPress Global Community Team members Josepha Haden and Andrea Middleton.

In 2010, I was going through a tough divorce (aren’t they all) while my business was starting to really take off.

It’s no secret the tech industry is largely white and male. Anyone who doesn’t “fit the mold” faces challenges, from recruitment to the hiring process and throughout their careers.
